SEMA Australia: Meet With Pre-Vetted Buyers in Key Global Export Market

By Linda Spencer

Representing JE Pistons/K1 Technologies/ProX/Wiseco were Sean Crawford (back middle), vice president of marketing and business development, and John Ohradzansky (right), sales. “We were pleasantly surprised with all the activity we had at our booth,” Ohradzansky said. “The Australians were very excited to talk with us. The energy level was high, and it was a great event for us.”

Join SEMA for the bi-annual SEMA Australia Regional Business Development Conference, May 9–13, in Melbourne. Meet with pre-vetted trade buyers in this market identified as the second most important global export market for U.S.-based SEMA-member manufacturers.

U.S. government grants are available for qualified participants to help defray the cost. Rates begin at $3,850, and include a turnkey booth at the Motor Ex Show networking reception with buyers and visiting specialty-equipment shops. Fees also include four nights’ lodging and meals.

A record number of trade buyers (160) are already registered to visit the SEMA delegation during the May 11 trade day in the SEMA section at the Motor-Ex Show.
